Supplement Overview

Item Catalog Number: 00577
14 Tablets
Click to View Supplement Facts

The 130 mg dosage of potassium iodide in this supplement is used only in the event of radioactive emergencies to protect the thyroid gland (such as from a nuclear disaster). Potassium iodide is a specific blocker of thyroid radio iodine uptake.

Since the thyroid cannot differentiate between radioactive and stable iodine, it will absorb both. This pharmaceutical dose of potassium iodide works by blocking radioactive iodine from entering the thyroid. It works by saturating the thyroid with stable iodine thus preventing the radioactive iodine from absorption. This benefit lasts 24 hours and must be repeated daily as long as radioactive iodine exposure continues.1

If you are interested in daily nutritional doses of potassium iodide to support a healthy thyroid gland and cellular metabolism, we offer Pure Encapsulations Iodine/Potassium Iodide for that purpose.

Melatonin Suppositories, Cancer, and Radiation

Anyone concerned with radiation and cancer may be interested in the research below. I personally take one Zetpil Melatonin Suppository every night. It is the most powerful antioxidant in the world with so many benefits, but oral Melatonin gets destroyed in the liver and stomach, and it is impossible to get the high dosages necessary through oral supplementation. The Zetpil suppository absorbs directly into the bloodstream at therapeutic dosages.

Direct into the bloodstream! Used by informed anti-aging doctors for many of the following reasons: Cancer, Stroke, Heart Disease, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Menopausal pain and symptoms, Skin Care (used by the stars!), preventing debilitating migraines.
